ok thai numbers r less complicated :ninja: cause they go by Buddhist Era (B.E.) ;) (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thai_solar_calendar) an on the reverse of every thai coin the yr is written (easy 2 figure out) u can use the table on this link http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thai_numerals to get the Buddhist Era (B.E.) yr an convert it ;) eg:- my coin was B.E. 2530 which is 1987 ;) (ty google an wikipedia xD)

 

 

Buddhist Era (B.E.), which is 543 years earlier than the Christian Era (A.D.). For example, A.D. 2007 is equivalent to 2550 B.E.

 

thus another trick ;) to get a christian yr from a thai yr u can minus it by 543 :D eg as shown above B.E.2550-543=A.D.2007 :D
